iCloud Email Forwarding: How To Forward Your Emails

Sometimes, you really just need to forward emails you’ve received from someone else to your iCloud mailbox. Luckily, you can use iCloud email forwarding to share those messages with your secondary accounts.

Why Do I Need To Forward iCloud Emails?

When you need to respond to a conversation with someone over electronic communication, you typically press “reply.” However, replying to a message keeps the conversation with the original party. It doesn’t start a new thread with someone else. That’s where forwarding comes in — it lets you share the previous conversation with a new person without continuing the original conversation or cluttering the original message thread.

There are a variety of instances when forwarding iCloud email can be helpful. Sometimes, you need to share information with another person who may not need to respond to the original conversation. Other times, you may need to save a link or an attachment to a different device. In both instances (and others), iCloud email forwarding can be very helpful.
